Jeesh, they're like $200 bucks. I can make a set for about $20 so I think I'll go that route  ;)

Update: I made a dual exhaust system for it. Got the engine running and broke in the cam, set the timing and did a little tweaking. I'm going to pick up a set of fenders and inner fenders today for it. I think I've decided on a color but I'm not tellin  :P until I actually buy the paint since I'm still open to other idea's. I should have some pics soon after I'm done wrapping everything up.

I would get them from Chris because he carries Goodmark and you basically have an OEM fit however I get my body panels from Keystone because I have a commercial account with them. I don't pay shipping and get everything cheap next day so it's easier for me. Everything I've bought from Chris has been top notch though and I'm not just sayin that if you haven't bought from here yet.

On another note FUEL TANK SELECTOR SWITCH is different for TBI and carbureted engine's if any of you are running dual tanks and plan to do the TBI conversion. Autozone sells both with the bezel. I got mine today as they sent me a carbureted one for an 87 but when I looked up a 91 I found the correct one. I scored a set of brand new doors, wheel wells and mint OEM fenders today for $200 bucks (craigslist score) Funny thing is the guy I got these parts from is buddies with the guy I just bought the other K10 from. Anyway I should have some major progress by the weekend.

Only reason I asked is that I do alot of barter work for someone in your area and I need some stepside fenders in the future. Thought he might be able to pick them up for me as payment when I get to that point.

You ain't lying, its amazing how cheap 73-87 trucks are around here! BTW I've seen 3 extended cabs in the Houston area in the past 20 years or so, 2 driving, one in someones yard rotting.   :(

Went through the fenders and made em nice n straight. Sealer primed them Wednesday so today I'll hopefully have them ready for paint. Maybe I'll even get them and the doors done by Sunday
